IRVING, Texas – After the draft ended Saturday, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said the Cowboys would be aggressive in the college free agent market, particularly on the offensive line since the team did not draft a lineman.
He wasn’t kidding.
The Cowboys signed six, highlighted by Memphis guard Ronald Leary, whom the team almost drafted in the sixth round but backed off because of concerns over a knee injury. The other undrafted lineman signed were: Columbia tackle Jeff Adams, Oklahoma State tackle Levy Adcock, Notre Dame tackle Taylor Dever, Miami guard Harland Gunn and Idaho tackle Tyrone Novikoff
